Alicia Williams is a Lecturer in the Marine Sciences Department at the University of New England. She recieved her Bachelors of Science in Biology from Roger Williams University in 2008 and went on to complete her Ph.D. in Oceanography at Texas A&M University in 2015. During that time she conducted research projects across a wide range of marine systems including coastal estuaries, coral reefs, open ocean circulation features and deep sea subsurface sediments. Her primary research focus was understanding how microbial community structure based on physiology, morphology and taxonomy connects to microbial functional roles in marine ecosystems. At UNE she now teaches introductory courses in Marine Sciences.
